Summary: I am sending back for RMA. It's pointless if recording feature does not work on demand.
Pros: Excellent picture quality Audio works fine
Cons: Recording did not work at all! I tried with a QNAP NAS, local PC, and local SD card. Also tried 2 different firmware revisions. Although you can turn off the green power light, you cannot shut off the sensors which light up red. ActiveX control did not like the latest FireFox browser
Not a true upgrade over the far less expensive 5020L
16 September 2014
Summary: More hassle and more expensive than the 5020L. Having previously purchased the 5020L, I needed an additional camera and thought I would "upgrade" to this camera.. I found the performance lacking: HD will only be evident on a quality computer monitor: if you're going to view from a phone you won't...
Summary: The device isn't bad, for the price, if you just want video. But, if you are interested in sound as well as video, you might look at another unit. Sound does not appear to be compatible with a number of mobile apps, or the surveillance application installed on our Network Attached Storage unit in...
The technology for these types of cameras is not ready for consumers
1 April 2014
Summary: After spending several hours updating the firmware on this device, I finally got it connected to the d-link cloud. Furthermore, the applications and lag to control these devices are several YEARS behind in technology and the result is a glitchy lagging picture and performance for camera rotation.
Summary: I ordered this camera but after spending several hours trying to get the cameras to consistently connect to my home wireless network, I returned it for a refund. Over the course of 3-4 days I spent 2-3 hours on the phone with DLink technical support and they were unable to resolve the problems.
Summary: The only reason it's not in the box and on the way back already is that I've got other Dlink products and I really like them. The hardware is good quality and I've never had one of their network cards, routers or APs fail on me even after many years of use.
Pros: Seems like good hardware. It feels solid, and the video looks quite good. Nice long power cord. The white parts are very white and the black parts are very shiny black. Okay, I'm out of good things to say about it. Stand by for the "Get off my lawn!" part.
Cons: Some really bad software and processes. Multiply cursed by: It triggers the "This application may not have installed correctly" errors from Windows 7 every single time the "wizard" app exits. Not confidence inspiring if you're relying on it for security. It has the full complement of Java securit...
Summary: Well..I am a fan of D Link cameras. This is my 7th D Link but first DCS-5222L model. I figured that I would try it out and see how it compares to the other ones. So far I do not like it. Reason I have not been able to get it to work with either of my routers.
Summary: The camera hardware is just ok. 1280x720p does not look crisp as you might expect (even in good light). It turns, tilts, pans just fine. There's a bit lag and you can't hold the turn/tilt button for continuous turning. Setting up the camera was straight forward. Now the software: It sucks!
